I feel like I’m wasting a teabag, but I’m going to make this tea twice anyway: once clear, and once with milk. Just to play around with it a bit, and because my head is giving me a hard time and I’m hoping a bit of caffeine will help. (Sleep was not my friend last night, and now I’m sore somewhere between my upper neck and head. One of those nights. sigh)
Clear, it tastes… dry from the spices, and perhaps slightly oversteeped. This is definitely a chai that I think will hold up better with milk and sugar than it does without. With milk and sugar, it doesn’t really hit the perfect spot, but it does taste more chai-y at least. Good, but not great.
